The drama, “Golden Boy,” features Theo James as the youngest police commissioner in New York City, examining what he needs to do to get the opportunity.
The series is debuting on Tuesday night, Feb. 26, taking advantage of the network’s big audience that night with “NCIS,” television’s most popular drama. It will air on Tuesday the next week, too, before being moved to its regular time slot on Friday nights.
“Golden Boy” will be paired with “Blue Bloods,” another show about a New York police commissioner.
CBS also will bring back the comedy “Rules of Engagement” on Feb. 4. It replaces the now-canceled sitcom “Partners.”
Frank Ocean, Pakistani teen honored by mtvU network
The mtvU network is honoring a rap superstar who detailed his love for another man and a Pakistani girl shot for her education advocacy as its Man and Woman of the Year.
Frank Ocean, who earned six Grammy nominations Wednesday, published a letter online about his first love, a man, just as his “channel ORANGE” disc was being released. MtvU on Thursday called it “an incredibly brave move for an artist on the verge of superstardom.”
Fifteen-year-old Malala Yousufzai blogged about her support of education for girls in Pakistan. For that, Taliban militants stormed her school bus and shot her in the head and neck, but she survived.
The mtvU network is geared toward college students and is seen on more than 750 campuses.
